Heritage Retention

How would you feel if all your heritage was lost in a bigger crowd, as was Simeon’s? What would you do to recover your lost identity? (Serendipity Bible, 10th Anniversary Edition, page 582).

I grew up on Superman and was enthralled by his allegiance to winning the never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American Way.  This battle is marked by many milestones–religious freedom, women's suffrage, the civil rights movement, considerate laws for the handicapped, provision for children and the elderly, and for equal opportunity in jobs and education. The trajectory for much of this is set in the Bill of Rights and is ever-developing in the structures of society at large.  The current lone-standing Republican presidential candidate has attracted millions of supporters in the primaries and is now the presumptive nominee for the general election.  Based upon his inflammatory remarks and egocentric character–and in view of the large support he has received–my anxiety is growing that I am lost in a bigger crowd.  To sustain my identity, I will remember the American Way as I have long understood it and will never leave the battle to uphold it.
